John Street Inclusive Design Challenge: Access John Street

Location: Inclusive Design Institute at OCAD U, 49 McCaul St, M4W 2G8, Toronto
Time: July 6th: 6:00 pm to 8 pm | July 7th: 9:30 am to 5:00 pm
Update: This Inclusive Design Challenge has been postponed for the summer’s end.

John Street is an exciting blend of theatre, restaurants, retail and services each one with unique challenges for providing an accessible customer experience. John Street is about to undergo a big make-over that should improve the accessibility of the street. The goal of BIG IDeA and the Toronto Entertainment District Business Improvement Area is to help businesses on John Street be more accessible on the inside too. BIG IDeA has gathered accessibility barriers from businesses on John Street to inspire the 7th BIG IDeA Inclusive Design Challenge Event. Join us on July 6-7 to bring your ideas to solve these challenges. Update: This Inclusive Design Challenge has been postponed for the summer’s end.
